What Is an Injunction Order?
Injunctions are restraining orders used to protect individuals often after a criminal case. It forces a person to perform or stop taking a certain action. For example, a domestic battery arrest, could cause an injunction case.
There are two sides to an injunction order:
- Petitioner: the individual seeking protection from the court
- Respondent: the person who allegedly committed the crime
If an injunction is issued against someone, it will restrict their access to firearms and potentially have severe employment and social consequences. In addition, what occurs at an injunction hearing may be used in a criminal matter later on. As such, if you are the petitioner or respondent in an injunction hearing, it is important that you are professionally represented by a skilled attorney who can ensure a fair hearing and protect your rights. An attorney can also use their knowledge and skill to build the strongest case possible to suit the particular circumstances of the matter at hand.
What Is a Risk Protection Order?
Risk Protection Orders (RPOs) are a tool used to protect individuals by temporarily limiting their access to firearms. Generally, these orders last for one year, but can be renewed. They are filed by a law enforcement agency or law enforcement officer. During the evidentiary hearing, law enforcement must prove that the individual poses an imminent risk to themselves or others if allowed access to firearms. It is important for individuals facing RPOs to have legal representation by an attorney who has experience with trials and the appropriate procedures. This ensures that your rights are respected in court and no incriminating evidence is provided that could later be used against you in criminal proceedings.
Working with an attorney when you are involved in an injunction or RPO can make all the difference. Whether you are the petitioner or respondent, representation from a knowledgeable and skilled lawyer is essential to making sure your voice is heard, your rights are respected, and that you receive a fair hearing. An attorney will be able to represent you during this difficult time. Don't let your rights and future be put at risk; turn to Caughey Law, PLLC for protection and guidance during this process.
